Letter 48

To THOMAS FORBES KELSALL

Harcourt Bdgs.,
Temple,
London,
May 29, 1847

MY DEAR KELSALL,–The author of all those celebrated unwritten productions, amongst which I particularly solicit your attention to a volume of letters to yourself, will leave the station for Fareham at seven o’clock to-morrow, and stay Sunday at that place:

      Poor bird, that cannot ever
         Dwell high in tower of song:
      Whose heart-breaking endeavour
         But palls the lazy throng.

                                           T.L.B.

[Gosse, 1894]
